We are lucky to have so many farmers markets nearby, and we already recommended the closest, on La Cienega at 18th Street within walking distance of Reynier Village, Thursdays from 2 to 7pm.
But our favorite is the Culver City Farwers MarketCulver City Farmers market, now on Main Street between Venice and Washington Blvd, Tuesdays from 3 to 7pm. They not only have a variety of  fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms, but a real find.  A lovely young woman cooks healthy and delicious dishes for you to take home. Check out her weekly menu at Smart Simple Gourmet, pick them up and get ready for a real treat. She has a stand at the Mar Vista Farmers Market as well, on Grand View at Venice Blvd, Sundays 9am to 2 pm.
On Sunday mornings we also like the little market on Melrose Place East of La Cienega, and the newest, the Motor Ave Farmers Market on National.

    A farmer’s market has a great way of bringing together the community. I have written to Wally Marks of the Helms Bakery to suggest a weekend farmer’s market in one of the Bakery’s parking lots. Unfortunately, he argues that there would not be enough parking for regular patrons and employees without the use of one of their four parking lots. However, I’ve never seen the lots north of Venice filled. It would be great if more people encouraged this idea of yet another farmer’s market within walking distance.
